Helpful Tip from the Garden Geeks: if your clematis is the envy of the neighborhood, share it with your neighbors. Strip the leaves from one of the lower branches while it's still attached to the vine. Dig a shallow trench and gently bend the branch down into it. Cover with an inch of rich soil and weigh it down with rocks. Eventually, little shoots will pop up wherever there were once leaves on your branch. When each sprout grows its own roots, cut the branch into small pieces. Pot the new vines and give them as gifts.
